No Bake Choco-Oaties & Savoy Truffles

I created a delicious treat that reminds me of the no-bake cookies that you make with oatmeal, peanut butter & chocolate.  My healthy version is YUMMY and uses almond butter instead of peanut butter!  I store them in the freezer so they stay firm. (recipe below)  Also, I made Savoy Truffles from Rawvolution by Matt Amsden.  These are delicious carob/coconut balls that are rolled in coconut.  They also stay in the freezer.  If you don't have this book, it is a great one to have in your library. Below is my Raw Choco-Oaties creation and the Savoy Truffles.


NO BAKE CHOCO-OATIES
Printable Recipe

1 1/4 cups whole rolled oats
3 tbsp. raw cacao powder
1/2 cup raw agave
1/4 cup almond butter
Extra cacao powder to roll balls in.

Mix ingredients together and roll into balls.  Dough will be sticky. Then roll dough in cacao powder. Store in freezer for a more firm ball.

Savoy Truffles
Printable Recipe
Makes 20

2 cups raw almonds, finely ground in a food processor
1/2 cup carob or raw chocolate powder
1/3 tsp. sea salt
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup agave nectar
2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil

In a mixing bowl, combine the almonds, carob or chocolate powder, salt, and shredded coconut, and mix well.  Add the agave nectar and oil and mix until a dough like consistency is reached.  Using your hands, roll the mixture into ping-pong sized balls. Roll in coconut flakes.  Serve as is or cover and freeze before serving until thoroughly chilled for  a more solid consistency.

  11. This is beautiful. I'm always on the lookout for portable sweet treats! Now if only I can get my hands on some raw cacao. :( Will melting a dark chocolate bar suffice?
